    Default Site slow to load

    Anyone else noticing a real slow down of sharetrader.co.nz to load (on Chrome - windows 10). Not Chrome as other sites load fast. Slow to load on android phone as well.

    Yes the page loading has slowed down a lot, it is by far the slowest now of any of the other pages I have open, even international sites. I'm on VDSL so it is quite a contrast to other sites, nevertheless it is also slow on 3G/4G. Safari browser on Mac and iPhone.

    Yes, terribly slow. But only Sharetrader, other sites fine.

    Maybe the system has to think for a while about who's banned and who's not

    Having the same slow issues as well from time to time and from different PC's (work & home) so it is not either system as other sites are fine.
    Maybe just coincidence, but quite often I will stop the load (pressing the "x" on the address bar) and then click on the page etch again, usually seems to fix it, at least temporarily.

    Yep, noticed that as well (using Windows 7 with Chrome as well as Android). Given that during these "slow" times other webpages (like hotcopper ) typically still load at normal speed do I not assume that the cause for this slowness is in my systems and / or Internet connection (though latter plays up from time to time as well, but then all webpages are slow to load ...).

    Yes I have noticed it too...thought my computer may have been too clogged up with too many cat videos. Doesn't it have something to do with the site hosting the website....? Maybe there has been very heavy traffic recently and its getting overloaded.

    Vince can you have a look please. I can open up my browser and other pages open within a second or two . Shartrader.co.nz takes 30 - 60 seconds. So long I wonder if its broke.

    Slow for me too, v slow at times. Slowest website on my computer.But suspect its my settings and am pretty useless at that sort of think and its an iMac which hasn't turned out to be so easy to transition too.

    Not so sure Jtree, was slow yesterday for me as well but any other site loaded fine, both from work and home, both via Win 7 and IE 11
    Has been better today, though was a bit slower earlier this morning.

    Awfully slow here whether on phone, tablet or laptop. Just shows waiting response message for an eternity.

    Yes, slow to load on a tablet, marginally better on a W10 computer in the same home network.
    Site not available comes up enough to be annoying as well.
    Getting fibre shortly, maybe that will fix it.
    Maybe it will be quicker saying site not available

    ......have been finding Sharetrader the slowest to load of any site I visit. This appears to be a fairly common problem now that Ive looked into it. In fact it's soooo slow now I may not bother with the forum....just ridiculous!! Any geek out there got some suggestions/ideas.......I dont think it's a settings problem as it's affecting too many others and it has got noticeably worse over the last few months?? Thanks in advance.
    Have a Gr8day.

    The site has now been moved to a server with SSD. Seems much faster now. Why does spinning rust even still exist?! Sorry about the pain!
